HOUSTON -- Fugro Gravity & Magnetic Services has introduced MagCUBE technology, which enhances geomagnetic referencing by increasing the accuracy of measurement while drilling (MWD) in directional drilling applications.

MagCUBE uses the magnetic intensity measured at the surface from an airborne, marine, or land magnetic survey. The surface magnetic data is geomagnetically referenced to the magnetic survey data measured in the wellbore to provide a finer subsurface anomaly vector, which provides a more accurate well path and avoids sidetracks, the company says.
